WIN! RIDE LIKE A GIRL Movie tickets


As a little girl, Michelle Payne dreams of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup, horse-racing’s toughest two-mile race. The youngest of ten children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy. She leaves school at fifteen to become a jockey and after early failures, she finds her feet, but a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream. But with the love of her dad and her brother Stevie, Michelle will not give up. Against all medical advice, and the protests of her siblings, she rides on, and meets Prince of Penzance. Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream, a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history.

Ride Like A Girl is the directorial debut from renowned Australian actor Rachel Griffiths and is the true story of an Australian champion, Michelle Payne; the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup. It is also the story of an extraordinary Australian family lead by Paddy Payne who raised ten young children as a single father in rural Victoria. It stars Teresa Palmer as Michelle Payne alongside Sam Neill, Sullivan Stapleton, Magda Szubanski and Stevie Payne, Michelle’s brother who plays himself in the film.
